Moray Saiyaan Episode 10 Review – Quite Interesting!

Ohkay so, this episode of Moray Saiyaan was definitely good & I had a great time watching it. Finally, things moved forward & brought some very nice changes in the story. I am glad that the youngsters ran the show this time & I’d appreciate if things remain that way. I think the first half of the drama has already been dedicated to the elders & their issues, so now they all need to take a back seat!

Nimra finally had a heart-to-heart conversation with Kabeer, where she told him everything that she has felt all these years. I liked how Nimra got a chance to say everything that she had on her mind & then in the end, Kabeer ended their conversation on a funny note, like it was good to see them both having a father-daughter moment. Once again, a tiny little thing that I picked up which bothered me was Nimra’s mention of the fact that Kabeer took Anas with him & going by how things were rolling, Zakia & even Nimra were in contact with Anas throughout the time he was away, so why was it shown that Kabeer came to Pakistan on his own & met Ghaziyan by chance that too as a stranger? Like are they trying to tell that Anas NEVER mentioned it in front of Zakia or Nimra that Kabeer was going to Pakistan? Then seeing how Zakia & Nimra have always treated Ghaziyan as an integral part of his family, so I am not sure how they all were oblivious of Kabeer & his plans of coming to Pakistan? I somehow am unable to digest the fact that 1 family member i-e Anas seemed to be in contact with his family in Pakistan, so how come no one knew about the 2nd family member i-e Kabeer? No one had an idea about Kabeer; neither Nimra (through Anas) nor Farah (through Altamash), which seems quite odd. I know these things don’t really matter much but since so many episodes were dedicated to this gypsy mysterious uncle named Kabeer, I feel the writer & the director failed to establish solid grounds behind him being MIA. Also, I don’t see any justification for him being out of the picture like he never existed & everyone speaking about him as if he vanished into thin air because quite a few people around him were already linked to the rest of the family members in Pakistan, so I am not sure why everyone in the initial part of the drama made it look like they had ZERO idea of where Kabeer went, especially now when it was suggested that Anas lived with him all these years? LOL!

Anyways, Zakia got a chance to scream her lungs out too but before she could’ve deafened me, I chose to forward her scene because I knew she’d be whining about why Nimra chose to go to Kabeer’s house. Zakia has left that place ages ago & she couldn’t accept the fact that Nimra decided to fulfill Kabeer’s wish. Zakia seriously has some psychological issues because where she wrecked havoc in her husband’s home years ago & she is still doing the same in her brother’s home now. Zakia surely wants everyone wrapped around her little finger & when things go out of her hand, she just can not bring herself to accept it. Finally, Waris decided to have a say on this matter too & I liked the fact that he acknowledged that the dynamics were about to change because the youngsters were going to take charge of everything. Waris knows that Zakia can not impose her wishes on everyone & she can not rule everyone’s life, that is why he could foresee how things were about to change.

Nimra & Zubaria got a chance to have a conversation. I liked the fact that Nimra apologized to Zubaria for the way Zakia misbehaved with her & then she ended up inviting her cousin to her Nikkah ceremony as well. Nimra started to feel that everything was turning out to be wrong & she was committing once mistake after another. Nimra could feel that Ghaziyan was not happy with the decision that the elders made on his behalf & he was just keeping a promise he made, that too halfheartedly. Ghaziyan on his own was suffering but he was keeping everything inside as he knew that no one would listen to him & no one would understand how he was feeling as well. Yes, he chose to share his feelings with Gul Zeb but even he knew that Gul Zeb herself has been a victim of Zakia’s wrongdoings all her life, so even if she wanted to, she couldn’t help him!

Finally, the time arrived when Nimra had to face the reality. At first, I was shocked to see that Zakia chose not to attend her daughter’s Nikkah, but then later I was thankful that she didn’t because Nimra wouldn’t have done what she did. Nimra chose not to get married to Ghaziyan because she could see that his heart wasn’t into this relationship & he lost control of his emotions the moment he saw Zubaria. It was good to see that Nimra had more sense & wisdom in comparison to all the elderlirs of the family combined where they were bent on forming a relationship that wouldn’t have given any happiness to anyone. Everything that Nimra said to her father was nothing but the truth & she made a lot of sense because she knew that Ghaziyan would only get married to her but he’d always be in love with Zubaria. Just a little side note, even though I am glad that Zakia didn’t attend the function, but her protest didn’t seem justified because the ceremony was in any case being held in a function hall & not at Kabeer’s place? LOL! So, for her to attend the function, she’d had to go to the function hall & not to Kabeer’s house, right? Then what was the entire fuss about? *smh*

Overall, this episode was pretty good & everything was done nicely. The pace of the drama has slowed down but it wouldn’t matter much if they’ll keep on moving things forward because a lot of episodes have been dedicated to the family politics & riddles which are hardly making any sense at this stage. I feel as the episodes are progressing, the loopholes of this family drama are becoming more evident. To be honest, I am actually disappointed to see Anas’ character because he has zero contribution in the story & I am sure it will stay like that, similarly, I have lost hope in Altamash’s character too because I am sure his arrival won’t make any difference as well. I am not sure what & why is it that the writer & the director have chosen to keep Altamash locked inside the laptop or a cellphone till the 10th episode lol, let him come outside, I am sure he needs a breather as well! Altamash’s character seems like a purposeless filler because when Kabeer told Nimra that she is the only sister of 2 brothers, I actually started thinking if this was another riddle that we’ll have to solve but then Kabeer took Altamash’s name along with Anas’ & I was like ohhh accha wo bhi hai. Anyways, the preview of the next episode seemed interesting, seems like the rest of the episodes will go by where Nimra will keep on convincing Zakia to accept Zubaria as Ghaziyan’s wife & Ghaziyan will keep on convincing Zubaria to become his wife! Overall, it’s a very decent play to tune to & I have a good time watching it, also why not when the cast is so good, the background score seems to work & the locations are beautiful! 🙂 Please share your thoughts about this episode of Moray Saiyaan!

Keep Supporting,
Cheers,

Pukaar Last Episode Review – A Happy Ending!

Awww the last episode of Pukaar was sweet & I liked the way everything was addressed. I am glad that despite the extremely slow pace & the over dosage of flashbacks, Pukaar got a complete ending where all the things were given a proper closure without leaving a room for anything to be covered!

One of the best things of this episode was an end that Zamani met. She was made to pay for what she did – better late than never! Sultan & Tashfeen mourned the loss of their son Fahad & did realize that he never wanted to become a part of this political system that Sultan was running in his hometown. It did end up being the reason why Fahad died & both Sultan & Tashfeen knew that. It wasn’t surprising that Tashfeen showed up for a couple of seconds in this last episode because her role wasn’t important – just like her character. I also feel that Jia Ali was wasted in this drama & failed to leave a mark despite trying really hard.

code Copy and paste this code on your site.

Sultan assured Samra that Qasim belonged to her. This was his way of apologizing to her for all that she went through in his house where he just couldn’t protect her from the atrocities thrown her way. Rehan Sheikh did the best he could with this one dimensional character of Sultan but then that’s expected from an actor of his calibre.

It turned out that Laali Ma was basically aik bezti ki maar but having said that, it is worth mentioning that in a very brief conversation it was nicely elaborated how young widows in feudel setting are usually treated, where their urge to get settled again is suppressed & they are expected to become the torch bearer of family’s dignity. I also liked how Laali Ma admitted that she could not tolerate a girl who questioned her every step of the way, who was basically a newly wed – something which does tend to make ladies like Laali Ma envy their newly married daughters in law. Everything that Laali did was basically a reflection of her jealousy against Samra & then a chain reaction of everything that she herself endured when she got widowed, but it was good that she admitted & apologized for everything but I wish Samra had insulted her earlier so that this drama could’ve ended earlier too!

Finally, Samra overcame the guilt that she felt right from the beginning of her relationship with Sarang. Samra continuously labelled it as a betrayal against Fahad but then, even though dramatic, the entire scene was nicely done where Fahad communicates with her & talks her out of getting divorced. Even though they made it dramatic but it still had a touch of reality to it that those departed do tend to guide their loved ones through dreams!

Finally, Samra said it. I liked that they just didn’t end the drama by showing that Samra chose not to get divorced, in fact she worded her feelings & was the first one to admit that she was in love with Sarang. Obviously, he gave her plenty of reasons to fall in love with him & I am glad she did. Their chemistry was amazing & it was nice to see how comfortable Yumna Zaidi & Zahid Ahmed looked with each other on-screen.

Even though the story of this drama was predictable right from the beginning, there was something that kept the viewers coming back to it. I honestly believe that 16-18 episodes were enough for a story like Pukaar because the content wasn’t new. The unnecessary usage of flashbacks & extremely slow pace did at times made this drama a task to tune to but I will let it slide considering all’s well when it ends well. For me, the best thing about this drama was Sarang’s character. It was nice to see a positive soul with a positive outlook on life in the middle of so much of negativity. Zahid Ahmed did the best he could but I so wish he hadn’t just sat on the makeup chair without an input allowing the so-called MUA’s do their own thing because they well & truly messed his look with unnecessary amount of makeup which did affect his character’s personality – thanks to a well-written, well-conceived character & even better acting that Zahid Ahmed was able to save himself as well as Sarang. Yumna Zaidi did really well in terms of acting but now when the drama has ended, I don’t feel any connection with Samra’s character & I am happy at the happy ending only for Sarang’s sake. Anyways, please share your thoughts!

Meri Gurya Episodes 3 & 4 Review – Highs and Lows!

These two episodes gave further insight into the personalities of all the central characters and their relationships with each other. It was just as disturbing as the first two episodes because it was shown in detail how a paedophile’s mind works. Dabeer’s scenes were the most frightening element of these two episodes. Mohsin Abbas Haider has once again nailed a character which isn’t easy to translate on screen. However, I must say that because lately we have seen a few really good dramas which highlighted the mindset of such sick people you can’t help but compare this drama with Udaari in particular and Dabeer’s character with that of Imtiaz. While Imtiaz was a more clever person who knew how to manipulate others and his personality characteristics definitely fit in more with the general profile of such criminals, there are certain aspects of Dabeer’s personality which are difficult to understand. It was shown that Dabeer always liked playing with dolls and still owned dolls, I am wondering how does this aspect of his personality fit in the whole picture and why is it considered “not normal” for a little boy to play with dolls. I feel that it would have made more sense if he kept these dolls to allure little girls as opposed to showing that because he played with girls as a child there was something wrong with him since he was little. I could be wrong but that is the impression I got from this scene.

Overall however the writer has intelligently conveyed how such people get all the details they need and the fact that this is someone who is really close to the family also hits home. In these two episodes, Dabeer made up his mind that Abida was going to be his next victim and he did whatever he could to get all the information he needed to execute his evil plan. All his interactions with Abida were terribly frightening and when Abida went missing I found myself hoping that she was still alive. I am glad that the writer didn’t rush things and I also hope that Abida is somehow saved in the upcoming episodes too. In these four episodes, Abida has been introduced as a sweet girl who unlike her sisters goes to a madrassah because the education there is for free. Although, she is the third girl her grandmother never wanted and wished she was a boy but she is also the one who is relatively closer to her since she doesn’t go to school and isn’t “liberal” like her sisters. The child actress playing Abida’s role has played her part really well. Sania Saeed’s acting as usual has been effortless and effective. She is convincing and likeable as a mother who does whatever she can for her daughters under the given circumstances. Safeena’s character is likeable but Sonya Hussyn’s hairdo and overall outlook isn’t up to the mark. This character could have been far more impressive had it been translated on screen differently. Having said that, it isn’t difficult connecting to the kind of relationship Safeena and Abida share and the genuine concern Safeena has not just for Abida but for everyone else too. Big Bang should give up this hairstyle for good, it didn’t look good on Saboor in Meeras and it doesn’t suit Sonya either. The production house is coming up with better stories but the supporting actors and the overall feel of their plays needs a makeover.

code Copy and paste this code on your site.

Although Safeena wanted Dabeer to divorce her whenever he could but now she has realized that she can fulfill her dream while being married to him therefore she has decided to make this relationship work. Dabeer’s withdrawn attitude around her made perfect sense. He was constantly planning his next step and thinking about all the information he had gathered so far. Safeena could tell that there was something wrong with him but she could never even imagine that the person who she thinks needs help, actually needs to be put behind bars. Dabeer mentioned that Jahan Ara’s father used to teach him Quran and he said so in a meaningful manner. I am wondering if he went through a traumatic experience in the past!

In this episode the viewers saw that Abida’s phupo Jahan Ara will ultimately end up “assisting” Dabeer without knowing it. Shehnaz’s close relationship with her daughters has been well established in these four episodes therefore it will be heart-wrenching watching her suffer in the upcoming episodes. The preview of the next two episodes was confusing and it was difficult to tell whether or not Dabeer will be able to execute his evil plan, which is definitely better than knowing exactly what will happen next! So far, Meri Gurya has been a decent watch and I am waiting to see how the story moves forward in the upcoming episodes. The way this drama shows that a murderer and rapist could be a seemingly harmless neighbor is yet another reminder that parents should not trust anyone with their children. Although, Udaari and Muqabil both gave the same message but I do feel that these things should be shown on television repeatedly since there are times when parents tend to overlook such aspects.

How many of you watched these latest episodes of Meri Gurya? Do share your thoughts about it.

Ishq Tamasha Episode 18 Review-Revenge Begins!

This episode has started Mehrab’s revenge spree against Rushna and one more thing it has established is YES! RUSHNA IS SUPER EVIL. Rushna got to know about Arham’s death in the very start and has no reaction to it. She was still indulged in her chocolate covered dreams. Mehrab has also become a constant confusion now. Not letting Rushna’s mother bring breakfast is his idea of taking revenge for his brother’ death? He didn’t even confide in his Phupho who has also suffered an immense loss. Her decision to leave Mehrab was the sanest scene in the whole episode.

Mirha bechari kya kare? Thanda paani pi maray! Yes, Mirha’s situation just reminded me of this nursery rhyme. She just started dreaming about her saviour (kidnapper) Mehrab and all her dreams were shattered in a second. Mehrab’s scheme of sending her back is also non-sensical. Pressurizing your wife to send Mirha back is not going to get Mirha her reputation. And Mirha was s settled in Mehrab’s house. Parr ye bhi Rushna le gayi!

code Copy and paste this code on your site.

Rushna is a mature girl who knows how to scheme, trap boys and insult anyone. So, she must behave like that too. Her whole behaviour after reaching Mehrab’s house was like that of a child. She had no interest left in Mehrab who was her dream prince. All she wanted was to redecorate and wander around the house. Most annoyingly, she did not even ask Mehrab that why his family does not know about their marriage? And why there are no preparations for a Walima. Rushna is still not miserable. She is still scheming and being a jerk. Hopefully, in the next few episodes, we could see her regretting her attitude.

The whole Palwasha episode is super-weird. The girl is a very good actress indeed but she is too young to get scoldings for Gajras and have affairs with her cousin who is too grown up for her I must add. Aqeela really needs to take a hold of her daughters. They are literally messing up the balance everywhere. And it is high time that Wahaj starts taking practical decisions instead of lounging around and throwing unnecessary sarcasm!

Main Khayal Hoon Kisi Aur Ka Episode 3 Review-Whateven!

This drama started like a high-speed roller coaster and deteriorated at the speed of the lightning. In just three episodes, the makers have forgotten what they were trying to go for. It started as a love triangle where two brothers fell for a single girl. Then we saw the scenario of adoption come into play. The adopted boy sacrificed his love for the sake of his mother’s satisfaction.

Dania is the worst I would say. First, you went blaming only Zaryab for the whole ordeal. She didn’t even try to take matters into her own hand. Then she is seen blaming Armaan. Armaan at least stuck with what he was going for. He divorced the girl and doesn’t want anything to do with her. But now the bechari Dania wants to keep living with a man who has divorced her. What kind of culture or mentality is being promoted here? Even if they wanted to show Dania as a bechari, they could have shown her ordeals after the divorce. But she is living with her ex-husband, making parathas for him. Like WHAT EVEN???

code Copy and paste this code on your site.

Zaryab and Armaan’s encounters are too childish to bear too. When you have already openly said woh tumhari biwi hai, then at least complete the conversation. And Armaan, a guy who divorced a girl in a second and has no regards for the society is waiting to talk openly about it with his brother. Why is he not cleaning up the mess? He didn’t ask Dania when he was divorcing her. So, why is he waiting for her approval to announce it?

The mother’s character is also so poorly etched out. She is trying to make Dania behave as Armaan’s mother or nanny rather than a life partner. At the same time, she is concerned about Zaryab’s marriage. If you loved Armaan so much and you knew he is such a sensitive soul, why you married him off to his brother’s girlfriend in the first place?

Moreover, the performances are so bad throughout this episode. Alamdaar needs serious work on his dialogue delivery as well as his expressions. Even Hareem seemed lost in all her scenes. The lack of depth has literally destroyed this drama in only the third episode.

Yes, many would say I have come harsher on it but they are showing a girl who wants to live with her ex-husband which is ridiculous!
